Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Saturn’s sextile to your Sun this year brings grounding, protective energy into your life this year. You are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side in the year ahead. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
Nevertheless, Uranus is shaking up some areas of your life this year. It’s not as difficult as it may have been last year because you have Saturn supporting you, but there are still some issues to deal with. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience. However, they could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. A strong desire to express yourself in completely different ways is likely to take hold, but sometimes the method you choose to express these needs is provocative or harsh. Surprises can most certainly happen this year, as well as the urge to do something completely new.
As well, Pluto continues to transit conjunct your Sun this year, marking a period in which you are re-defining your basic personality and life path. Your personal goals come up for evaluation, and you may find that you are becoming a “new” person in many ways. There may be some event that leads you to uncover a stronger “you”. Frustrations on the job or in your personal life are likely to enforce some kind of positive change. This is an extremely creative and dynamic period in your life when you should expect to make some significant changes in your life. Some struggles are more than likely as you forge a new identity and life path. Something has to change, and change it will! Your best bet is to avoid resisting change, simply because resistance tends to attract chaos. The result will be a re-worked and re-defined “you”.
You are likely to feel more wilful than usual. You are passionate this year, and feelings of resentment, frustration, and even outrage are more easily stimulated. You may face some roadblocks and conflicts in your work, with authority figures, or with key males in your life. These roadblocks are certainly not insurmountable–in fact, they arrive in your life so that you can find new ways of expressing yourself. You are turning over a whole new leaf. All that is superficial simply will not do it for you anymore. Your sense of self, where you are headed in life, and your relationships come up for serious inspection. What you don’t need, what doesn’t satisfy you on a deep level–these things need to be re-worked or they need to go. Situations that have made you feel helpless or ineffective to date will no longer be tolerated. This transit is an empowering one. By the transit’s end, you will feel considerably more in control of your life. You will have a more intimate relationship with yourself and your needs, and you will have uncovered your own strength and power. You may not see it while you’re in the midst of it all, but you’re sure to look back on the year as a memorable one that led to self-discovery and clear opportunities to make your mark on the world.
With Saturn’s support and your determination, this can be a powerful and productive year. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if you can readily attach meaning to it.
Your affections are strongly stimulated this year. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they are feelings of love or anger!
Bursts of creativity and energy can help you to further your goals this year. You are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. This is an excellent time to weed out the unnecessary in order to focus on what really matters. Kicking a bad habit comes more naturally now.
You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively.
Hard work and persistence come naturally to you this year, and you might often find yourself in a teaching or guiding position, although ego issues can sometimes trip you up. You can successfully let go of outworn attitudes and difficult relationships or situations, as you are especially aware of what may be holding you back. Imagination and creativity are strong, and you are able to think outside of the box.
2012 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2013 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
